After Report Of Death, FDA Warns Patients To Keep A Sharp Eye On Medtronic Pacemaker Batteries

The US FDA is cautioning people implanted with particular Medtronic pacemakers to pay close attention to their device's battery level after the agency received reports of unexpected battery depletion – including one that led to a patient's death. The problem stems from cracked capacitors that can create an electric short in the pacemakers, causing their battery to quickly drain.
